The foundation of training for a circus actor is the flexibi ity of their vocabulary. Compared with theater and dance, circus is an art form lacking in character diversity, and contemporary circus can only be creative if it knows how to transform and bend its vocabulary through specific training. In the hunt for a personal ized language a circus vocabulary is needed, distinct from theater and dance, something that is purely circus yet flexible enough to be able to transform an acrobatic action into a lyrical, danced movement or an expression of emotions. The main characteristic of the circus actor is the ability to speak through metaphors in the attempt to reveal unexplored corners of the human soul, with the objective of el iciting new emotions through technique. With the help of physical conditioning, manipulations, gestures, choreographies or movements, all in all , with the help of their body, the circus actor creates images that ask to be deciphered by the spectators and their stagefel lows as well . A true network of real ities and discipl ines is thus constructed, experimented and consolidated so that the talent of each artist contributes to the imaginary proposal being presented. This investigative workshop offers participants the opportunity to discover new paths to explore, of which Roberto serves as a passionate mentor who is always listening.
